Hi, I'm Seane Marie and I'm a fashion stylist. Denim jackets can sometimes be tricky to pull off. When paired with the wrong ensemble, what we'd like to call a classic denim jacket can become a little reminiscent of a nineties soccer mom. To avoid this fashion mishap, you have to first remember that denim is a fabric that you should never overdose on. Never pair your denim jacket with matching denim pants. You don't want to look like Justin Timberlake of the 2005 MTV movie awards. So, instead pair your jean jacket with romantic feminine pieces and worn in accessories for a casual but ladylike look. Today we've put Chelsea in this jacket by G-Star Raw. I've layered this piece over a feminine white dress that is nipped in at the waistline to accent her ladylike figure. Adding a brown braided belt, provides a casual element to this chiffon dress and matches the rugged feeling of the denim. Next, I rolled up the sleeves of the jacket to even further dress down this look and make Chelsea's arms appear longer than they are. This trick is commonly used by stylists to make jackets and sweaters appear more fitted while adding visual length to your limbs. Finally, I've added a pair of vintage chunk heels who's western influence allow them to perfectly punctuate this casual yet put together ensemble.
